    Oddly 4e is probably better suited to a video game than 3.x. In fact every update this game gets closer to 4e (for example the new enhancements V3 we are getting later this year with its clickie focus is very 4e like).

    Instead my reply to box looks like this:



    Hey Turbine, look at that picture! Your new forum sucks.

    They like to take a sledge hammer in to put a tack in the wall to hang a calendar with.

    There is no middle ground with these people, it is ALWAYS one end of the 'extreme' scale or the other, there is no in between.

    Look at your pic there, that box was white originally, blindingly glaringly white, but readable.


    Me personally, in my opinion it is as if they got the stylebot addon and couldn't figure out how to change the text color. It is a no brainer to right click and change background color's.

    A couple of days ago, I caught Turbine making changes to the forum's code and colors... this is what they came up with?

    I have no words that can express what I feel when looking at this fail some colorblind jobsworth created... and saying that is an offense to colorblind people... they still manage to match colors better than whoever created this disgusting forum.

    Oh, and Turbine... your web designer, on top of being incompetent, has div-itis.

    Default Some problems with the new forum style

    here are some screenshots that show problems with the new forum
    these are unmodified, no stylish or anything

    first one shows bad font on the right
    second shows what 'my posts' looks like in mobile skin
    third shows what 'my posts' looks like in default skin

    lemme know if this doesn't work right or something

    Let's see...

    On the first one, you have a fail called "box is too small". The incompetent moron they have coding made the text boxes too small for the text, so it gets cut off.
    The second one looks like someone having a seizure. Actually, looking at that almost gave ME a seizure.
    The third one is called plain and simple incompetence or maybe someone in Turbine is trying to get us all blind.

    it seems there are less new threads than before

    the reading is may be better since the background isnt so dark

    side note: it's nice they close distances from newer dnd editions by bringing lore from 4th and from Next when released

    It is quite amazing, it has to be said. To spend actual time and money working on a "new"forum and have them look so dated and amateurish compared to the old one.

    The whole site looks and feels like one of those, buy your own website, choose the boxes type thing.

    To say nothing of the technical errors I and others are still having. What's with not being able to check new posts... duplicate headers or some such.

    The whole thing has an, interns first project feel to it. Although, I'm not at all technically minded so its easy for me to say. Still, I reckon £5 a month to a build your own website would be worth looking into Turbine, if your looking to upgrade from this that is. Personally I would prefer the old forums back. Please and thank you.

    Well since the last update, my Forum account has now been associated with my old Forum Name...

    The new Forum Name that I had to select has disappeared.
    If I had known that that would happen.... I would have trolled harder!
